It may not have escaped your notice that today (St. George’s Day) is also the birthday of a rather special English writer. William Shakespeare was born on April 23rd and famously died on the same day, 52 years later. In honour of his literary genius and the many more writers and poets that have been inspired by him, we’re shining our spotlight on our cottages in his hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon. This picturesque town in Warwickshire won’t only appeal to fans of The Bard- you can read our guide on what to do in the area here.
